Each network can only protect five games from week 11 through 16 so for each network at least one of those weeks will not have a game protected.

Huh, I hadn't realized this before.

I like it. If you can’t bring your A game to prime time, then you’ll have no chance in the playoffs. 

Agreed. Fearing prime time seems wasteful if you want to beat LA or New Orleans in January. May as well get that exposure now.

Here’s how the playoff picture looks heading into Week 10:

1. L.A. Rams (8-1): A loss in New Orleans doesn’t change the fact that the Rams are the class of the conference.

2. New Orleans (7-1): The good news for the Saints is they just have to keep winning.

3. Chicago (5-3): Owns the tiebreaker with Washington based on better record in NFC games.

4. Washington (5-3): The leader in a weak NFC East.

5. Carolina (6-2): Has the wild card lead heading into Week 10.

6. Minnesota (5-3-1): Half a game behind The Bears in the NFC North.

7. Atlanta (4-4): Owns the three-way tiebreaker over Philadelphia and Seattle thanks to its 4-2 NFC record. Because it’s a three-way tie, Philadelphia’s head-to-head victory over Atlanta doesn’t come into play.

8. Seattle (4-4): Owns the tiebreaker over Philadelphia thanks to its 3-2 NFC record.

9. Philadelphia (4-4): The 2-3 conference record hurts in the tiebreaker calculations.

10. Green Bay (3-4-1): The Packers are still in the playoff race, but it’ll be an uphill climb from here.

The Bears have a pretty easy schedule the rest of the way, but that Thanksgiving day game is a little more tricky now. They Sunday night and then have to turn around and travel to Detroit on Thursday, who always seems to play fairly well on Thanksgiving
